The Apartment

A Little Background

El Pisito is part of a building located in Plaza Santiago, alongside Bilbao Cathedral. It was built in 1901 and, until recently, belonged to the same family, who always used it for rentals. According to the latest information we have, our Pisito was a jewellery workshop for more than 20 years.

The building was originally much bigger, as it spread out to Calle Carnicería Vieja. However, some years later, a segregation was carried out and resulted in two annexed but independent buildings. For this reason, our apartment has its peculiar long and narrow layout. In fact, our apartment is only “half” a house. Luckily, we have kept the best part, with seven exterior balconies and views over the Cathedral.

Our House

Our House

“There is something special about El Pisito” is a sentence we often hear when welcoming our guests. Is it the old beams, rescued during its complete refurbishment? Or is it the oak floor that floods the whole apartment? Whatever it is, there is only one way of discovering it... Keep reading and immerse yourself in our apartment!

The Living-Dining Room

Do you feel exhausted after a hard day wandering around the streets of Bilbao? Good news: our sofa-blanket-film pack awaits you. Or, if you prefer, a good book about the city. Have a look at our bookshelves and discover the emblematic buildings that were built by Ricardo Bastida, the most prolific municipal architect of the 20th century, or how Norman Foster came up with the design for the Bilbao Metro. All of this is accompanied by spectacular views over Bilbao Cathedral.

If you are travelling with friends and have drawn the short straw of sleeping on the sofa-bed, don’t be alarmed: our sofa is not any old sofa. It measures 160×200 and is manufactured by the Spanish brand Sancal. It is easy to open and has an extra mattress to ensure a good night’s sleep. It is a super sofa!

The Bedroom

It is a spacious and bright room that can accommodate up to two people (and a baby). It has three balconies overlooking Santiago Cathedral and a large double bed, measuring 160×200, which can be separated into two single beds. Therefore, you can share a room but not a bed. Sometimes we like to be together but separate…

The bedroom has two spacious wardrobes, where you can leave your suitcases, and three original hangers by the Nordic brand, Muuto. It also boasts a full-length mirror by our favourite Danish brand HAY, and a chic rocking chair.

To ensure you have a good rest, we provide two types of pillow (viscoelastic memory foam and synthetic filling) as well as double blinds that offer total darkness.

The Kitchen

Our kitchen is small but practical. Not only does it have the electrical appliances of a large kitchen (dishwasher, fridge, microwave and washing machine), but it also offers delicatessen products, such as La Chinata olive oil or Italian IIIy coffee capsules.

On the day of your arrival, you will find a selection of bread and traditional pastries from Labeko, our fetish bakery, prepared with natural yeast dough and offering a unique flavour. Let’s not forget what you will find in the fridge: ecological juices, jam, fresh milk, farmhouse yoghurts, fruit, etc. Everything is 100% from here.

We can’t forget the little ones: we provide Colacao chocolate powder and a selection of irresistible cereals. At El Pisito, we firmly believe that a good day can only start with a hearty breakfast.

The Bathroom

In spite of its compact size, the bathroom is the king. We are not sure what we like most: our tiles that are reminiscent of the hydraulic tiles found in homes dating back to the early 20th century or the XXL sized shower with a wooden platform.

If you have left your shampoo at home, there is no need to go running out to buy some: we provide shower gel, shampoo and body milk by La Chinata, a brand specialised in ecological oils. And there is even a hair-dryer!

PS: If you are travelling with a baby, ask us for our “Welcome Baby” kit, in which you will find children’s bath products, super soft towels and a bath suitable for babies between 0 and 12 months. Travelling with children has never been so easy!

The Balcony

We enjoy a privileged location and we know it. For this reason, our favourite place in the apartment is our large balcony. At any time of the day and from any angle, you can observe all kinds of unimaginable situations: from txikiteros singing to the Virgin of Begoña to processions of Roman soldiers at Easter.

The best thing of all is that you can disconnect from the hustle and bustle whenever you want. All you have to do is close the windows and discover how our double glazing provides exceptional silence.

As said before, it is the perfect place to enjoy Bilbao without foregoing any comforts. It is precisely its location and the convenience of being close to everything that makes El Pisito a unique place.
